Horse's Mouth: The Presidential Race Comes to NM

Mikaela asks:
Loved that Ted Kennedy endorsement of Obama? Want to hear for yourself just how strident Clinton's getting in efforts to hoist his wife on his own Presidential petard?

This is your lucky week.

As gathered from NMFBIHOP via Daily Kos:

Ted Kennedy in Albuquerque and Santa Fe

Thursday (TODAY), Senator Ted Kennedy will be in New Mexico to stump for Obama, and will probably promote Obama's stop the next day.
From the New Mexico for Obama website:

Tomorrow Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) will host "Change We Can Believe In" community gatherings in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

Senator Kennedy will discuss with New Mexico voters why Barack Obama is the only candidate who can bring change we can believe in.

Kennedy will be at Albuquerque's National Hispanic Cultural Center. The doors open at 9:30 am, the program begins at 10:00 am.

Kennedy will make his way up I-25 for a 1:00 program at Santa Fe Community College's Jemez Room One.

Bill Clinton Rally in Albuquerque, Fundraiser in Santa Fe

Details of the Bill Clinton event come from this post.

if you're around the University area in Albuquerque on Thursday, you have a chance to catch former President Bill Clinton. The former President will be at the Johnson Center on the UNM campus at 2:00 pm on Thursday (previously scheduled for 3:00 pm but moved). The event, billed as a "Solutions for America" event is hosted by New Mexico for Hillary and is open to the public.

Afterwards, Bill Clinton will head up I-25 for a high-dollar fundraiser. Now that Bill Richardson is out of the way, wealthy Democrats in New Mexico are more willing to shell out money to other campaigns. You can meet former President Clinton for the low, low price of $2300 at the home of Beth and Stephen Moise.

Barack Obama in Albuquerque and Santa Fe

Senator Barack Obama will be in New Mexico Friday, visiting both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. From the New Mexico for Obama site:

Hillary In Albuquerque on Saturday? Chelsea in Las Cruces?

Since these are only rumors, I put this at the bottom. Not some sorta anti-Hillary conspiracy.

Two prevalent rumors that are just that at this point -- rumors -- say that Hillary Clinton will stop into Albuquerque on Saturday for a rally and that her daughter, Chelsea, will head down to Las Cruces on the same day.
